Congestion and breathless
For past 10 months I am feeling congestion in chest and sometime a slight pain. I thought it might be because for heart issue, so I did a ecg, 2D echo and stress test all came out normal. Local doctor prescribed PAN D 2 a day. have been taking PAN D now for around last 5 months. This not helping either. Please suggest.
